An original handcarved limited edition linocut print.
Printed in oil based ink, as an edition of 50 on Fabriano Rosaspina 280gsm paper.
The image depicts narcissi flowers, violets, and ears of wheat in a circle intertwined. The image alludes to the flora associated with the goddess Persephone in the Greek Myth. Persephone was picking flowers including violets, when she noticed the most beautiful narcissi flower. Reaching to pick this, the ground opened and she was taken down to the underworld by Hades. Persephone is sometimes also depicted with wheat, (as is her mother Demeter) as a symbol of the harvest. The hopeful cyclical nature of the seasons lends the image its composition.
Dimensions: 21cm x 21.5 cm.
Each print is signed, titled and numbered on the front, and is securely sent in a hard backed package.
